The above tabs are for the patterns played over the E and A chords
throughout most of the song. One varient of the Ep pattern is used
a few times (Ev), just before the chorus. Sometimes the open strings
are picked as indicated, other times they are just left ringing after
the first pick…play around with your own varients to break up the
monotony.

The above bar chords sound reasonable behind the chorus. They are
designed for ease of playing…thats the whole point of this song!

hear the above riff to drown it out. But if you must…
